My freezer is icing up and water is dripping from the ice. I'm having problems closing the door as a result, and removing frozen food.


Try this, If it is an upright fridge, remove the flont lower vent grill. Ten to one the coils are covered with dust and cobwebs. Not implying anything, mine was horrible. Vacuum all the stuff that has accumulated untill the coil is nice and clean.. Unplug the unit so you don't get into the moving fan blades and don't reach into the space, There are hot componants. Good Luck, Ned

Replaced the fuse and it immediately blows. My wife cooked several large potatoes got it ral hot before failure


see the steps and eliminate short circuit use the common sense: God bless you
No Lights or Power, Unit seems Dead First check is the main fuse of the unit. On countertop units, you will need to take the shell off. The fuse will be close to where the cord comes through into the unit. OTR units, this main fuse is usually behind the control panel or possibly behind the vent. Usually the fuse is obvious if blown, otherwise test with an OHM meter, if open, replace fuse.
Some brands will also have a thermal cut-off fuse in the incoming voltage line to the control board. Older Maytags and Samsungs have this fuse in it. This thermostat looking fuse is usually above the oven cavity somewhere under the outside shell. Sometimes you can get to it through the vent of OTR models. Test with an OHM meter, replace if open.

However if after replace the fuse the problem remain, you must test: a) power cord for short b) outlet wall for ground improperly c) HV transformer faulty d) Rectifier HV faulty e) Magnetron faulty. d) power supply faulty replace or repair filter diode, resistor. etc Or call some experimented service tech for troubleshooting.

Double door fridge freezer not cooling down heating the panel between the doors


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The symptom you describes it that of a condenser fan not running. Open the fiberboard panel in the back of the unit and check for substantial lint build up on the condenser coils and fan. Clean it thoroughly. If the compressor is running the condenser fan is supposed to be running. You can push gently the fan blades to see if it is trying to turn....

Once your done cleaning... if you can not get the fan going.. use an external fan directed at the rear bottom of the refrigerator until you can get a new fan. All the external fan is doing is removing the heat... that the fail fan can not.

The noted hot area between the doors should just be warm to the touch once the condenser coils are bing cooled properly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I am getting power and the freezer appears to be working but the fridge is not cold at all, any suggestions? Many thanks Dave McRae


Hi Dave and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

Take a look in the back of the freezer compartment. Look for any signs of icing on the back access cover. Usually but not always the evaporator coils freeze up because the unit is not automatically defrosting properly or there is a problem with the evaporator fan not running fast enough / at all. Press gently with your hand of the back cover of the freezer compartment and feel for ice. Also check the front of the chassis for signs of being HOT. It is ok to be warm not hot.
Also check to see that the light goes on and off as you actuate the light switch plunger. Some units have the door switch in the top of the door hinge but most have the switch in the door fold area of the chassis some where.

If you find that the evaporator coils have iced up:
  • Perform a manual defrost of the unit but first unplugging it
  • Remove the freezer contents
  • Direct an external fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hrs. (makes a water mess)
  • After 2 hrs clean up the water mess and return the unit to normal service.
  • Watch after 3 days if the fresh food compartment once again starts warming up. If it does you have and automatic defrosting problem.
No ice noted:
  • Possible temp control problem (Thermostat / cold control or thermistor)
  • Possible Air Damper problem. There are 2 kinds of air dampers. One is electrically controlled and the other is nothing but a mechanical baffle that is positioned partially open. If you have the electrical type the air damper motor may have failed or the movable baffle is stuck.
Front of chassis is almost HOT to the touch vs warm:
  • Open the back of the unit by removing the black fiberboard cover and inspect for lint and that the condenser fan is running anytime the compressor is running.
Light always on:
  • Door switch failure. Some door switches also control the evaporator fan along with water in door and ice in door functions. The water and ice in door should NOT work with the door open.
The above is pretty much an in home repair techicians check list for the symptom you describe.
If you discover that you have an automatic defrosting problem I will need you MAKE & MODEL number via your next response here so I can tell you what you can do to troubleshoot. (
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Microwave making loud noise while heating food. And food does not get warm or hot.


sounds like the magnetron has failed on this unit...it is located in side behind the control panel touch pad and if replaced usually requires disassembly of the outer shell of microwave... it is a common problem with microwaves and can be fixed just requires taking apart unit to do it...good luck to you
